Green light for LEDs at Light+ Building

June 26, 2008
Energy efficiency, green technology and LED lighting were central themes of Light+Building, the biennial trade fair that took place in Frankfurt in April. Tim Whitaker reports.
With more than 2100 exhibitors and 165,000 visitors, the Light+Building trade fair was a big, exciting extravaganza of lighting technology in which LED fixtures and components featured prominently. Many companies chose energy efficiency as the theme of their exhibition stands, although companies such as Osram and Philips were showcasing the advances that continue to be made in other technologies as well.

Over the next few pages we look at some of the highlights of the show and ask several participants for their opinions on the event and the progress shown by LED lighting.
